Portal 2

Firstly i'm going to start of by saying i haven't played Portal 2 yet but i am considering it.

Ok so there is obviously a lot of talk about Portal 2 and people asking if it is as good as the original and a lot of debate of why, from what i have heard the game is good and when looking at trailers and in-game footage reviews it really didn't look too bad. However recently a few people have been saying to me that its not all that its been made out to be. Now i'm not sure if thats just because Portal 1 set such high standards for them to make a new one and i can understand if its not as great, the main problem i face is will the price drop at all and what all you guys think about the game if you have played it.

Would really appreciate any feedback from any of you that have it and even if you don't maybe what have you heard about it :)

  1. I also haven't played Portal 2. I really want to though. Hopefully it is better than the original Portal, although the original Portal was a fantastic game.

  3. Good topic, I'll make sure to come back and visit.

    I finished the Portal 2 single player, still working on multi.

    Portal 1 had an awesome new mechanic, so that was part of the "cool". Portal 2 doesn't have that luxury, people already know what to expect from the game mechanics. Valve did add a bit (gels)...but it's the story dialogue that I really enjoyed. With the free downloadable content I understand is coming, I'd say to buy it at full price if you can.

    I only go after about 3-4 full price games a year. This is one of them.

  4. It was worth the money, IMO. People were sore about the game being short (although with separate puzzles/story for co-op and single player, it's a fair length) and the ARG beforehand. You won't get as many hours out of it as you would an in depth RPG like Baldur's Gate 2 or Fallout, but games shouldn't be judged by their length alone. The game-play, characters and soundtrack are awesome.

  20. portal 2 is a great follow up to portal 1 the story is decent but the game could have been longer its only 5-6 hrs of gameplay maybe other than that its a good game just dont play co-op with a gf you'll want to punch her in the mouth
